The Themes


This river is more than just water 
This river is in every building, every stone every mortar
This river is an emotion not to be summed up in words
Only to be felt by those who have seen the life it holds 
This river is the stars that shine off its suffice at night 
The twinkling of an everlasting light 
A show of strength, a show of might
A show that only the river can be right
For millions of years London has changed 
But only one thing has ever been sustained 
It kept the city moving so its never the same 
That's why London owes its life to this ever pumping vein

Poet's Notes about The Poem

I am a 14 year old boy who lives in the most boring town you can think of. Everytime I go to London it's like an escape from the Bordem so I have written a group of peoms about London.

    My name is Alex Gliedt. You should try and find me on facebook, I'm wearing a tank top in my profile picture. I just want to tag you in a status that I made about your London river poem. Also, I'm a photographer and I just took a photo of a river the other day with a few friends and I'm dedicating it to you. Find me, there's too many William Cheesman's! Haha, please and thank you! By the way, I'm 18, so I'm not that much older than you. You have a strong mind for the world. You could go far, keep this up. (Report) Reply
